For the past two years, we’ve lucked out with decent photos to create a photo Christmas card. (Yep, we were those people.) The first year was perfect. We had only been married for two months so I included a wedding photo and a honeymoon photo on the card. Last year, I used a picture of us at a friend’s wedding.
This year, I’ve got nothing. Seriously. I don’t think that we were very photogenic this year and I just couldn’t get my act together to set up a photographer. The stars did not align from September until now. Every weekend was spent apart or sick or already busy. At one point, one of my photographer friends was actually in Indonesia. Indonesia, people.
So I got the bright idea to make Christmas cards. (For my friends and family that read this blog, I apologize in advance if you don’t get a handmade card as it’s taken me quite a while – two hours – to make eight cards, and they aren’t close to being completed.)
You read that right. I’ve worked for two hours on 8 cards. Eight. Eight is not good. Eight only covers a few family members. And the cards aren’t even finished. I still have to stamp some words on the fronts of the cards, glue them together and figure out something for the insides.
Maybe I was a little ambitious tonight?
My goal was to have everything out the week after Thanksgiving. If you get a Christmas card by January 1, consider yourself lucky.
